Cambridge Cat Clinic

Veterinary hospital for cats
The site for this new, cat-specialist veterinary practice was originally a joinery workshop, opposite an open field at the edge of Cambridge. Our client was a veterinarian establishing a new business.
Gort Scott obtained planning permission for change of use and remodelling of the existing building to also include a new cedar wood screen on the front elevation, with a suggestion of cats ears. Beyond this screen is a generous reception and waiting area with specially-designed furniture, and views back to the open field.
The main working area for the medical staff is a large multi-functioning ‘prep room’, which is top-lit by two generous skylights.
The scheme’s design includes many aspects that respond to the client’s considered approach to the welfare of her animal patients and their owners.
The building serves both as a general practice specialising in feline medicine, and also as a surgery, with a full operating theatre, lab and diagnostic area.
